Paper Title:
Blow Forming of Lightweight Titanium Components
  Abstract

The objective of this study is to fabricate lightweight structural panels and pressurized tanks by blow forming of solid-state bonded Ti-6Al-4V sheets. The solid-state bonding process was conducted in selective areas of the sheets and gas pressure was applied to the core sheet in order to form center cells. The microstructure of bonded region shows no indication of any discontinuous or heterogeneous microstructure at interface. It is shown that the blow forming of a lightweight sandwich structural panel and a sphere vessel was successfully performed with solid-state bonded multiple sheets of titanium alloy. The result of configuration and thickness distribution measurement indicate that the FEM analysis can predict the forming behavior during blow forming process of solid-state bonded sheets.
